5.0 von 5 Sternen You'll Have Fun with Mei-Ling Hopgood as Your Global Guide to Parenting 4. März 2012
Von David Crumm - Veröffentlicht auf
Mei-Ling Hopgood is a top journalist who now teaches at the prestigious Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. For her readers, that means she's a lifelong storyteller, which you'll discover immediately when you dip into this wonderful book of real-life stories that circle the globe.

She is famous in her own right. Born in Taiwan and adopted by an American family at an early age, the bittersweet story of her reunion with her Taiwanese family as an adult appears in her earlier book, Lucky Girl. For most of her early life, Mei-Ling was a typical American: She grew up as a smart, enthusiastic Midwest school kid and even got a spot on her high school pom pom squad. When she became a journalist, her award-winning work appeared in newspapers and magazines nationwide. Before moving with her husband and children to the Chicago area recently, they lived for years in Buenos Aires. Given her global wealth of family experiences, Mei-Ling was fascinated by the vast differences in parenting choices as she circled the planet.

She was completing her new book, How Eskimos Keep Their Babies Warm, while two other controversial best sellers in this niche were making headlines and burning up websites: Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother and Bringing Up Bebe: One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting. Given Mei-Ling's background as a journalist, always seeking accuracy and balance, it's not surprising that Mei-Ling's book on global parenting now is widely compared by reviewers to Tiger and Bebe as -- the kinder, gentler book in this trio. Or, as Mei-Ling herself puts it in the conclusion of her book:

"I've reached a pretty optimistic conclusion after observing the adaptability and resilience of families in many circumstances and environments. Despite vast differences in beliefs, religion and culture, moms, dads and caregivers in most societies share a common desire: to raise children who can thrive in the reality in which they live. While no culture can claim to be the best at any one given aspect of parenting, each has its own gems of wisdom to add to the discussion."

If you've read Tiger and Bebe, then you know that viewpoint marks Mei-Ling's book as a distinctively different voice. As a parent and a long-time journalist myself, I was struck by how much fun I had flipping the pages of her new book. Among her journalistic talents, Mei-Ling has an eye for overall pacing, which means delivering those special gems that she promises at regular intervals to keep readers flipping page after page. Among those gems are little sections between chapters that might be described as fun facts. If you're drawn to this book, it's because you want to discover a whole Noah's ark of fascinating stories about kids and their parents from all corners of the world. Mei-Ling understands that desire and delivers regular doses of gee-whiz, real-life stories.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not worth the money if you actually want to learn something 31. August 2012
Von Ju - Veröffentlicht auf
This is well written and a fast read but it isn't really useful if you're looking for parenting tips - it's laid out as part memoir part light (very light) cultural anthropology. You learn a lot about Mei Ling as an adopted Chinese American and her American husband and their ex-patriate life, and her various worries.

I was looking for a book that would delve into, and tell me how to implement awesome practices other cultures might have. But this book just explores subjects that are pretty familiar to the average reading momma-to-be (at least, I assume so). i.e: if you've already looked into baby-wearing and E.C., you won't find anything more interesting here (although you will get some good research supporting why/how - for example, she went in depth into how 'early potty training' is completely discouraged by cultures that have disposable diaper industries, to the extent that now it is considered acceptable to keep your kids in diapers until 4 or even 5 years old). But we already knew that, didn't we? :)

Bottom line: I'm happy I got this from the library because while you may find it a breezy, interesting read in passing, it doesn't merit a place on your permanent shelf.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Makes you feel better as a parent 18. Februar 2012
Von crystal - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
The book gives a global perspective on parenting in a non-judgmental way. This perspective helped me see this trivial nature of some of the things we parents unnecessarily obsess about. The author researched her data thoroughly and her personal stories as an American ex-pat mom were refreshingly honest and relatable. I highly recommend this book for the parents of a young baby or toddler.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good Insight for Parents 11. März 2012
Von Christopher Alexander - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Since I'm a child psychologist, I found myself intrigued by this book after I heard some interviews with the author on the radio.

I also travel a good deal, and I'm continually struck by cross-cultural differences in child rearing, the freedom (versus not) allocated to young children, and parent-child interactions. On my recent trips to Spain, for example, I saw very few kids or teens who were 'hooked up' to some kind of apararatus, be it an I-pod, hand-held game, or cellphone. The love and affection between children of both sexes and their fathers is also admirable; so sad that we see little of that here (especially between parents of school-age kids or teens).

In our own culture, a good number of parents get overly-invested in 'doing it right.' While this is a concern to parents universally, we have such little support for parents--societal and familial--that it's no wonder their anxiety is so high. Parents contact me all the time, asking for books/references on how best to raise their child, fearing that one woops will damage the kid for life. I usually tell them to read one book on attachment; one on basic child development; and then to forget about the books and get on with the task of parenting.

Though none of us are surprised to learn that there are cross-cultural differences in raising kids, this book helps to illuminate the notions in starking and sometimes surprising detail. What is a way of life in one culture, for example, might warrant a report to child protective services in our own.

In addition to the stories of different cultural perspectives on parenting, the book has a way of pulling the reader in, begging us to take a look at how we were raised, as well as how cultural influences in our past affected our grandparents and parents.

This book will certainly appeal to parents, but those interested in expanding their world view will also derive a lot of information and thought from it. It's a well-written, well-paced book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Totally Fascinating & Entertaining--and It Gives You Confidence to Follow Your Own Path 23. Februar 2012
Von Mayflower Girl - Veröffentlicht auf
I really loved this book. I have four kids, so I've read a ton of parenting books. :) This was one of the most interesting to read by far. I've always wondered at the different advice given regarding pregnancy and kids.... soft cheeses and wine are totally forbidden here, but fine in France. Co-sleeping is "risky" here, but the norm elsewhere. The author and her husband were working in Argentina when she gave birth to their daughter. That lead to seeing how different Argentine's were regarding bedtimes (and socializing with kids) versus Americans. This also lead her to explore other differences. Some of the things (like baby wearing) are pretty mainstream these days...still, each chapter was a great read.

There are great tips here on having kids who are good eaters (France), close families (from the Arab-American community in Dearborn, Michigan), good sleepers (Argentina), great fathers (Africa), early potty training (China), etc. We can learn from other cultures--and just because an American "expert" says one thing, don't assume that it's that way around the world. What I found refreshing was that often the experts she did consult verified that the practices abroad were not harmful (such as kids staying up late). Probably the most fascinating (for me) was learning that male nipples may have evolved to give Dads a way to sooth kids when Mom was not available. Who knew?

This would be a great baby shower gift or a gift for any Mom. Highly highly recommended.
